After Zainab, 6-Year-Old Zunera Hingoro's Rape And Torture Is Making Pakistanis Absolutely Furious

By Maham Lari | 19 Oct, 2018

We all remember the horrific incident of Zainab Ansari – a six-year-old Pakistani girl who was on her way to Quran recital when she was kidnapped and later found brutally raped and murdered. The incident took place in January and the murderer was hanged this week – after 10 months. There had been 12 other cases in the same vicinity of Kasur that went unnoticed.

As we celebrate the justice served to Zainab, another act of human brutality has come forward. A case similar to Zainab’s is being seen circulating around social media.

According to a local Sindhi news channel – a six-year-old girl named Zunera Hingoro from Jamshoro has been raped and abused by the son of a local police officer. 

There have been no news and no reports of the incident on any other TV channel or on social media – except for this excerpt from a newspaper and a headline on one local news channel. 

Since then, people have taken to social media to express their anger and distress over the incident. 

The hashtag #JusticeForZunera is trending on Twitter and several people are demanding justice for the little girl.

This is yet another shameful incident and the fact that children are so unsafe in this country should stir each and every soul to the core. 

According to some people, Zunera Hingoro’s rapist has been identified.

People are hoping that the news makes it to mainstream media to create awareness and also to get justice for Zunera.

The reason why such incidents take place casually is because of the inaction of the authorities. 12 incidents took place and only one was served justice – that too because the public outrage and protests made it hard for the authorities to let the case go unnoticed. Why does each case have to be publicized to such an extent for the authorities and the law finally decide to take notice of it? Incidents like these prove that predators committing heinous acts like these are still out there. They fear nothing and no one. And that, perhaps, is more terrifying than anything else.
